I am very excited to be Candler's Title One Literacy
Specialist. As the Title One Lead Teacher I will be working directly
with classroom teachers and I will also be teaching reading to students
in grades Kindergarten through fifth. I will assist in professional
development and hold parent meetings in order to help provide guidance
in reading methods. It is my hope to instill a love of adventure,
first the adventure in reading mastery and then in the adventures that
reading stories provide.
Ms.Strickland's professional experience:
This is my 31st year of teaching and I still enjoy learning new and
exciting things. I have a Master's in Education which I received in
California. I also have a supplemental credential in English and
Reading. The most rewarding experience of teaching is witnessing the
"Ah-ha" moment that children have and witnessing children get lost in
the adventure of a book.
Ms. Strickland's favorites: I love
teaching, animals, especially my cat named Katie(she thinks she's a
dog), gardening, drawing, hiking, swimming, reading, movies, macaroni
and cheese, traveling, learning new technology, and snow. I love snow,
but I love all of our seasons and all that they have to offer.One book
series that makes me laugh is the Hank Zipser books by Henry Winkler,
and adventure books by Gary Paulsen. I hope you'll give them a try and
tell me what are your favorites??
